I'm trying to make a reply to a thread, but it won't allow me to, stating my IP posted less than 30 seconds ago. I don't know if somehow IPs are shared. (I live alone so nobody is posting from my internet)  It was for the reply in the Wondercon Exclusives thread. I had to connect to my iPhone as a personal hotspot to change my IP address to post it. I've never had a problem posting here before.

That is indeed odd.
I hate to ask, but have u tried to clear your cache?
I can't check in addressing till later tho. Lmk, if clearing the cache doesn't work and I'll investigate when I get home from the con.

Same here, but it happens after I like something (at least it seems to be that).  If I like something and then post something within 30s, I get that message.

This happened to me a little while back. I don't remember what the circumstances were. It just stopped happening as randomly as it started. I do remember being logged into multiple devices at once though.

This is happening to me again, I cleared the cache, and only signed into one device. What was odd was, I was signed out of my Mac. I normally am always signed in. The last time I posted here (I had already been signed in.) This time after I signed back in, the 30 second message appeared.

Are you using a vpn, or tor browser by chance?

Nope, not even close on either. Just using Safari and Chrome. And no VPN.

I'm getting this issue intermittently as well. Only on my phone via Tapatalk. It usually goes away if I wait ~ 2 min before retrying, but I'm definitely getting the same error message when I haven't posted anything at all recently.

I only stated getting this today, on the Tapatalk app, and only when I’m on the company network. If I disable WiFi, I can post just fine. So which one of you works at the same company I do??

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, it happened a bunch today to me. Randomly, different threads, times, no rhyme or reason. Would try to post, and it would state the usual message about the IP address. I would switch back and forth between my phone as a hotspot and standard wifi, and had to wait, eventually it'd work. Also as someone stated, it affects PMs as well.  Also, I'm NOT on Tapatalk. I'm just on my standard computer when all of this is happening.

Ugg, if work wasn’t a nightmare right now I’d do some extensive lab tests to figure out what is causing this. I believe it is the content distribution network component of cloud flare. We probably have to whitelist those cdn servers in smf.
